Atomic Horseradish?

Made by Morehouse Foods, this is the standard by which all horseradish connoisseurs measure horseradishes. Does anybody in Austin sell this either retail or VIA foodservice (I understand it's a popular restaurant brand as well)? I've tried Tears of Joy, restaurant Depot, and the the other usual suspect (CM, WF, Fiesta).

If I have to buy a gallon jug, I will (I have no idea what I'll do with it except share). But it's cheaper than paying over $1/ounce VIA mail order.

    1. re: NirvRush

      I'd prefer not to call every restaurant in town that serves horseradish.

      1. re: sqwertz

        they call it "atomic" on their menu. one suggestion doesn't really qualify as "every restaurant in town that serves horseradish".

        1. re: NirvRush

          When said suggestion has a question mark(?) after it it does :-)

          But now that you explain a little more, I will ask a friend of a friend who works there and at their Roaring Fork. Thank you.

          1. re: sqwertz

            ah, i see. question mark was more aimed at whether EV's used that specific brand or not. maybe if it is, they;d be willing to sell you a jar from one of their cases. you'll be set for life! =)

    2. I should also note that I believe it's horseradish season. I'd be interested in FRESH (not limp) horseradish root at a fair price (under $3). Mayeb try my hand at horseradish pickles.


      1. After looking this stuff up on google, Morehouse's website has a contact form; I'd just email them and ask them if they stock it anywhere around here. I'm intrigued now... definitely post again if you find it somewhere. Looks tasty.

          Popvulture is right on point. Contact Morehouse Foods through its web site or toll free customer service number (888) 297-9800 and ask them which stores in your area carry Atomic Horseradish.

          Morehouse Foods Customer Service:

          Also remember Atomic Horseradish is always stored in the refrigerated section of a store and not on the regular shelves with other jarred horseradishes and mustards.

          1. re: popvulture

            Like many websites, nobody seems to read their email slurped from the website. I've emailed them twice in the last month. And when I called I was asked to leave my number and inquiry and somebody would get back to me. That didn't happen either.


            1. re: sqwertz

              Sqwertz, when I called Morehouse a couple of months ago on the toll free number, a customer service representative answered the line. I would keep calling until a person picks up.

          2. Sysco has it but you have to buy a case (4 x 1 gal)!

              So who;'s with me? I have a resale license, but no account with Sysco. And how can they justify selling 4 gallons at a time if it's perishable? Many restaurants don't use that much of it. And often mix it with a bunch of other stuff.

              1. re: sqwertz

                It is not a regular stock item. It is special ordered and stocked for a specific customer.

                1. re: sqwertz

                  Hey Sqwertz, I bought a bottle at Sprouts on Saturday for $2.99.

                  1. re: Hornsfan

                    Cool. I didn't look there. I usually just bee-line for a jar of f Bob's Big Boy Roquefort Dressing.

                    That works better for me than 4 gallons.
